My name is Nicola, and I started at what was originally called The Village Pre-school in September 2010 as an Early Years Practitioner.  I became the manager in April 2014 and I took over the pre-school as a private limited company in September 2015.  I started working with children by running a toddler playgroup.  I thoroughly enjoyed doing this role so I went to University and obtained my level 4 certificate in Early years practice and went on to receive my diploma in higher education.   I have 3 children, two of whom are teenagers.  I have one dog and a cat.  I enjoy watching drama, reading non-fiction and talking long walks.

My name is Chrissy and I am a mother of two children aged 7 and 10 years old.  From the age of 14 years old I wanted a career in childcare.  I have been working with children for 22 years.  I began in a private day nursery and then moved onto working in a school before taking on a manager's role at The Brislington Village Pre-School.  When at home my passion is baking, family days out to parks and beaches.  I enjoy eating out with friends, watching documentaries, real-life drama and soaps.
